Re: Who dives on their own Boat?
I learned to dive so that I could do under water repairs on my old boat. It's easy and fun. It doesn't look like you have a dive computer, so just check your depth vs maximum bottom time on your charts.
I recall that I could spend an hour working on my anchors with no problem according to the charts.
I suggest you get good gloves if you've got a lot of bottom growth. I've had barnacles cut through mine. Also, some growth stings -- wear the wetsuit even in warm water. When you free lots of growth, the fish will come for a visit. We had a resident barracuda that made bottom cleaning ... interesting.
